    Nowhere near as interesting as One pair of hands or One pair of feet this was a look at upper middle class life just after WW2 quite historical Dickens writes in a very easy way with good characterisation, so that although the plot was a little weak it was nonetheless charming.

    An enjoyable story set at the end of WW2 about the recovery of a wounded vet He is the prisoner and his prison is his bed.There were a few issues with typos that kept me from giving it 4 stars He is at home and the characters in his family are humorous.
